The creator of the Litecoin network, Charlie Lee, recently talked about his creation. He was interviewed by podcaster Dan Gambardelo, known as the founder of Crypto Capital Venture, and talked about the benefits of the cryptocurrency.
Gamberdelo asked his Twitter followers to come up with unique and original questions for him, so they did. One person asked a pretty interesting question: why Litecoin does not need to pay to be listed on any platform while most altcoins do?
Lee’s answer was, that it makes business sense, basically. Exchanges see Litecoin as a highly traded asset that can bring in a lot of revenue because people actually use it. The same cannot be said for many cryptocurrencies in the market.
The community also came up with several other questions. For instance, someone asked Lee if Binance charged him for listing the asset. He affirmed that they did not. When asked if he still mined LTC, Lee confirmed that he had stopped to mine tokens himself around 2016 or 2017.
Someone also asked him if he ever talked to Satoshi. Charlie Lee affirmed that he did not have the chance to do it because Satoshi was already gone when he entered the crypto space.
Unfortunately, though, the situation is not looking good for Litecoin, despite what Charlie Lee states. The token is entering a bearish trend after losing some of its value recently and several LTC investors are already bracing for a long Winter ahead at this point. After the BTC sell-off, LTC went down together and it is now the 6th largest token by market cap.
